** Played with beautifully in Weirdmageddon Part 3, when Ford agrees to let Bill inside his head in exchange for saving the others. [[spoiler: Bill, so gleeful he's finally managed to trap Ford after all this time, doesn't notice that Ford and his twin brother Stan switched clothes, and now he's in ''Stan's'' mind. The Pines twins promptly pull off their [[BatmanGambit Batman Gambit]] by wiping Stan's mind, which, although it will mean Stan will no longer remember his family, will also destroy Bill for good. Bill promptly has a [[VillainousBreakdown Villainous Breakdown]], and begs Stan to make a deal so he can escape- absolutely anything, anything! Stan [[ThanatosGambit just doesn't care.]] ]]

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''- In the Season 4 finale, Discord strikes a deal to side with Lord Tirek. Discord captures Ponies so Tirek can steal their magic in exchange for Discord's freedom and [[WeCanRuleTogether world domination]] as part of the deal. It goes just about as well for him as you'd expect, because once Tirek got strong enough, [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he stabs Discord in the back]] and [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves steals his magic as well]].

* ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'':
**
In "Wizard of Stone Mountain", a demon called Lokus, working for the ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' episode Spirit of Evil, offers to assist the wizard Mallek in winning Teela's heart in exchange for a price to be revealed later. Lokus then begins wrecking the land and reveals Mallek is unable to attack him or use his magic on him. When Teela investigates the destruction, Lokus captures her and delivers her to Mallek, and even though Teela doesn't want anything to do with him, Lokus claims he fulfilled his part of the bargain. He summons the Spirit of Evil, who attempts to claim Mallek's soul. He-Man battles the demon, but they are too evenly matched. Mallek's assistant Karyn, who was in love with him, offers her own soul in exchange for his. The Spirit of Evil agrees, but is unable to claim her soul because of ThePowerOfLove. Enraged, the Spirit of Evil either destroys or banishes Lokus before returning to his realm.

* TV series ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' are based on the contract of Billy and Mandy with GrimReaper, where Reaper fails and has to stay with those two forever as their friend.
* ''LooneyTunes'' - in one short (that was later expanded to become a full episode of "The Bugs Bunny Show") YosemiteSam goes to Hell. The Devil strikes a deal where he'd let Sam go if he could get Bugs Bunny down there. After several tries, with his usual lack of success, Sam angrily calls off the deal, puts on a devil costume, and declares he's staying.

* A proposed episode of ''WesternAnimation/Sealab2021'' called "Ronnie" would have centered on one of these: the devil, nicknamed Ronnie, would have come to collect Murphy's soul in exchange for Murphy running Sealab all those years, a deal he talked Murphy into after Murphy rejected fame, fortune, or power because it'd end with him getting crushed by a safe. [[spoiler: However, Murphy claims that the deal was actually for a piece of Josef Stalin's pumpkin pie (ItMakesSenseInContext). Ronnie's only able to collect his soul when, after initially rejecting the pie cause he was 'not hungry', he's coaxed into it by Stormy declaring it to be delicious. And despite not being part of the deal, he got Stormy's soul too.]] Ultimately the script was rejected for not being funny enough, but a rough cut of the episode is present on the Season 2 DVD.

* In the ''Ben10UltimateAlien'' episode "The Enemy of my Frenemy", Charmcaster offers the lifeforce of every inhabitant of her dimension ''(600,000 people, including the heroes)'' to [[EldritchAbomination Diagon]] in exchange for her dead father's resurrection. However, her father refuses his resurrection, saying he never wanted this, that Charmcaster is being a worse tyrant than the one who killed him if she goes through with this, and that though he loves her, he can't stay with Charmcaster, and Diagon, as per the laws of magic, returns the lifeforce of Charmcaster's victims. Charmcaster suffers a VillainousBSOD afterward, followed by a progressive turn through the HeelFaceRevolvingDoor.
